Invisible Woman: A Reflection on Being Seen in America

Melanie P. Moore is a writer living in Austin, Texas. A graduate of the University of Georgia with an MA from Georgia State University, she was previously the founder and executive director of Badgerdog Literary Publishing, where, with a talented team and key community support, she started Austin’s first writers-in-the-schools program (now a program of the Austin Public Library Friends Foundation) and re-launched American Short Fiction after acquiring the defunct journal from the University of Texas Press in 2003. “Invisible Woman” was taken from her current project, a memoir traversing sexuality, spirituality, and illness.
